Christina F. - Seeking Work in South Berwick

14.28 / hour

My first job started at the age of 10 as a babysitter for the neighborhood kids and continued through my adulthood. My best friend had a baby at a young age and I always did whatever I could do to help her out and I developed a wonderful bond with her daughter and still do till this day. Since becoming a mom 5 years ago my close girlfriends and I have always helped each other and took turns watching our children. Although I did not get paid as a nanny/babysitter we did it to help each out. There would be always be at least 6 or more kids at a time so I have experience with taking care of multiple children at a time.
